Eight utility companies have been singled out for violating the U.S. Clean Air Act. Eric Schaeffer, a former EPA officer, pointed out that a link has been found between emissions of sulfur dioxide and particulates from power plants and premature mortality.

Schaeffer said that the Clinton administration had cracked down on these plants to install new emissions filters, but the plants have not followed through under the Bush administration's softer standards.
